Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The preschool combines structure and freedom under a caring environment in which children, through their play and their relationships with children and adults, receive a solid foundation for all of their other school - and life - experiences.
Excerpted from the preschool's website

A Typical Day

"Each class has a "home base" where children start the morning, share circle time, read a story and eat snacks and lunch. In addition, each class plays daily on equipment that develops large motor skills. Another daily happening is "Choice Time," in which boys and girls choose from several play centers designed to develop eye-hand coordination; perceptual and cognitive skills; social awareness; imaginative play; language; and other important skills"
